Menu Plan Monday & Three Recipe Reviews

I have been remiss in publishing the results of our new recipes that we try during the week. I'll try to catch up, beginning with the French Toast Sticks we intended to have for breakfast a couple of weeks ago (we had them for dinner instead). Mmm, mmm good! My only gripe: I had to make another batch of the egg mixture for the amount of bread suggested. And, I think I'll slice the bread after I cook it next time. Seems like this would cut down on the prep time.

As for the Crockpot Chicken and didn't turn out as I had hoped. The stuffing turned to mush in the bottom of the crockpot and never recovered. It tasted like salty stuffing soup. My husband was mortified. I ate it anyway, because I can't stand to waste food. The chicken, however, was quite tasty, as it was very moist and fork-tender. I was told on more than one occasion that it was reminiscent of chicken pot pie chicken. Is there a difference between chicken pot pie chicken and chicken and stuffing chicken? I guess some people think so.

Finally, the last review for this post is on the Greek Penne and Pasta dish. The kids didn't care for it....I thought it was okay. A friend of mine was simply delighted when I delivered the rejects to her home.
